Lyrics
I've seen a many bridges in my time and crossed every one of 'em
With no trouble at all (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I had trials and tribulations, heartaches and pains (well that's alright)
Survived 'em all baby (uh huh, say it, say it!)
Hmph, I'm still Melody, and I'm still Cool
Melody Cool

They call me Melody Cool (Melody, Melody)
I was here long before you (Melody, Melody)
If you're good I will love ya, (Melody) but I'm nobody's fool (Melody)
I'm Melody Cool

When I was born there were tidal waves (Melody, Melody)
Whole town went under nobody saved (Melody, Melody)
At every funeral it rained every time I sang
Melody Cool

I have been here much longer, (Melody) longer than you (Melody)
I'm Melody Cool

Well now, everybody runnin' 'round talkin' 'bout saving souls
When they know good and plenty well they got enough trouble
Trying to save their own
(alright, say it, say it girl)

(Melody, Melody, Melody)

Go on, go on.
Every woman and every man (Melody)
One day they just got to understand (Melody)
That if we play in the same key everything will be
Melody Cool

(Melody, Melody, Melody, Melody)
What's your name? (Melody, Melody)
New power wave your hand, everybody sing out across the land
Say hey hey hey (hey hey hey)
Say hey hey hey (hey hey hey)
Everybody say hey hey hey (hey hey hey)

They call me Melody Cool (Melody, Melody, Melody)

Looka here youngin'
Let me give you a piece of good advice, (Melody)
And I do get paid for counseling
It ain't no big I's and little you's in my life
So that's why you see they call me Melody Cool (Melody, Melody Cool, Melody)
I was here long before you (Melody, long before u)
If you're good (Melody) I will love you but I'm nobody's fool (Melody)
I'm Melody Cool
(Melody, Melody Cool, Melody, long before you)
